What are these wiring harnesses for?

    Here is a picture of three of the four button blanks on the left dash of my 2007 TRD Sport. I know these blanks are for options that the Off Road would have that the Sport does not, but if the Sport doesn't have the options, why the wiring harnesses? I assume the button blank without the wiring harness is the location of the locking diff. button on the Off Road, but what about the other buttons with the wiring harnesses? Are the wiring harnesses actually functional in the Sport; in otherwords, does it just take the switch (button) to make those options work? Sounds pretty unreasonable to me, but just wanted to see if anyone knew for sure?

    Hmmm . . . too good to be true! ;) Then again, I knew better . . . I just couldn't resist not asking.
